Therefore, it is important that studies be conducted to identify the function, composition and functioning of the SC in order to understand the difficulties and achievements in this collegiate strengthening of democratic principles process. Thus, through a semi-structured and invested in online extension course offered by DED/UFSCAR in partnership with SEB/MEC in 2011 activities questionnaire examined whether the configuration of the EC in the view of teacher students who were also technicians Municipal and State Education. After analyzing the data, we found ways to strengthen the SC and obstacles in this process. It was found that there is, according to the course participants, the strengthening of the principle of democratic management in schools because the Education Departments were taking actions, such as training courses, meetings and creation of working groups. Also had to create complementary to LGB 1996 that dealt with the specificities of action of EC regulations in the different municipalities. According to the course participants, through these actions occurred rapprochement between the state and civil society. We found that there were difficulties in strengthening the SC because there was lack of its function; prevailing authority director in school management and representativeness was not expressing the wishes of his peers. Given these problems and democratic advances, there remains the challenge for those involved with the school to build a participatory ethos that aims to improve the quality of teaching and learning, and the SC of the ways to act collectively.
